About Sherry

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages [ESL or TESOL] from Grand Canyon University. I am a former teacher with eight years of experience in middle school, three years in elementary school, and four years as an instructional specialist. I am currently employed outside of education but still want to be involved in making a difference in the lives of children.
As an instructional specialist, I worked one on one and in small groups, helping bring struggling students to grade level and above.
If you have frustration in other subjects, I am certified and qualified to teach 1st - 6th grades as well as math through 9th grade. I have a variety of experiences outside of teaching mathematics, including writing and editing as well as working with English Language Learners.
If you are ready to end your frustration, contact me so that we can work together to make it happen, because no one should have to say, "I was never any good at school".

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Texas certification is 1-6th grade self-contained as well as ESL. I taught elementary school a total of 8 years. I also hold a Master's degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.

Handwriting

As a teacher of 15 years, I believe it is important for students to learn to read and write in cursive. When I taught elementary school, I took extra time to reinforce this skill with students who had only been taught to print. Also, I have a son whose writing was illegible at the end of 10th grade. I spent the entire summer reteaching the basics of print using methods I learned in calligraphy.

STAAR

As a veteran teacher in Texas, I have seen the change from TAAS to TAKS to STAAR and can help students with this assessment based on the changes in how the tests are written. I have taught math from grades 3-8 and reading and writing in grade 4 and have tutored students in test-taking strategies for all subjects from grades 3-8. Since reading is at the heart of all other subjects, I have shown students how to analyze text to gain meaning so that they can answer STAAR questions.

Excellent Math Tutor

She has been absolutely wonderful in tutoring my child with Math. She makes Math fun which in turn keeps him engaged. She is open and listens to the parents concerns and tries to incorporate suggested things in her lesson plan to help the child's confidence. I would highly recommend her!
